DC Universe Online: Major PC / PS3 update goes live

We have some important news now for those of you that play Sony Online Entertainment’s hugely popular MMORPG DC Universe Online, as we’ve just discovered that the fourth major PC / PS3 update has now gone live. Not only does the latest update contain a massive amount of improvements and fixes, it also provides players with a number of new features.

The latest update provides players with a brand new raid, which according to Scott Grill over at has both Superman and Lex Luthor working together in order to defend the Fortress of Solitude. In addition, the update also contains a new 16-player PvP map set in Superman’s home away from home, as well as a new four-player Batcave alert.

Players will also notice that the Mission Journal has been revamped, making it easier to find and keep track of both available and completed missions, and gamepad navigation hints will now be present in the UI. One issue that has now been resolved is the one where a player would fall through the object they wee standing on when they were knocked out.

The update has also made it so that players will no longer be able to move / damage the Teleporter to Kahndaq. Male emblems and female emblems have now been renamed to Mars Emblem and Venus Emblem respectively. It’s also fixed the issue where specific inventory slots would not function correctly when using a controller.

Hive Turrets outside of the Metrodome will no longer be able to be moved, players should no longer have the ability to weaponize through doors, and quick menus will no longer be accessible while a dialogue window is open. Another problem that the update has now resolved is the issue where Two Faces’ henchmen would not attack in certain hallways.

Other issues that have now been resolved include the one where black SUV vehicles were not appearing correctly when damaged, an audio issue in the Oolong Island Alert that would sometimes prevent doors from making the appropriate sounds, and the issue where released NPCs would not attack gorillas in Gorilla Island.

The update has also made improvements to client stability, improved Marketplace UI functionality, adjusted the Voice Chat distortion, updated the lighting across some of Oolong’s interiors, made minor environment tweaks to Hive Moon Base, added the ability to take screenshots on the PS3 and added boss fight music to The Batcave Outer Caverns Raid.
